Are you doing a “dry” January? Abstaining from alcohol can be good for your teeth as well as your overall health. Alcohol can significantly dry out your mouth, which allows bacteria to flourish, as well as tipping the balance of bacteria in your mouth to more harmful types. Some alcohol can also be very acidic, which can chip away at your enamel. Thus, taking a break for a month, reducing your intake or even quitting permanently can be good for your oral health!
